October has been a horrendous month for working on anything other the UCT Teaching and Learning Conference! And while my office still looks like conference central, at least the chaos is more localised than a week ago and the time lines are more forgiving! More to the point, after a month of registration queries, printers, marketing and student assistants, it’s past time to return to serious work! It’s time to make a list of all the balls I have dropped (or at least gently tucked into quiet corners). For me, that’s going to mean a return to
- my research report on the presence and experiences of non-permanent teaching staff at UCT,
- my very exciting PhD,
- my seaTEACH participants, and
- my blogging!
I was trying to work out which of these I was most excited about and it turns out I can’t choose! I am very glad to be able to give some time to the research (thesis and report) again but I am also looking forward to being able to share this via this blog. Also in the immediate future is a seaTEACH workshop (a new model I am playing with) and a month of evaluation interviews! Time to think and revise!
